I'm guessing you have to have an xlt to do this, cause mine are grey and black, and I think they're ugly as all hell. I'm thinkin about gettin new emblems all together.

Put break cleaner on a rag, then rub the rag on it. Its very easy and you dont need to remove the emblem. My boss did it on his F250 and Excursion.

Acetone will hurt paint as well, basically anything you use to take the black off emblems can take paint off too.

I don't think I would mind having XLT on my truck. but I'm also thinking of shaving, so I'm not sure... hmmm, well, I'll take a look at em when we see each other next meet.
